York is to get its sixth digital café.
The Keeping Digital Foundation charity is partnering with the Joseph Rowntree Housing Trust to open the latest café at the Folk Hall, New Earswick.
Digital cafés enable residents to get dedicated support in getting online.
The first Folk Hall Digital Cafe will be held on 16 November between 10am and midday. It will then happen on the third Thursday of every month.
People can come along, have a cuppa and get answers to their questions about all things digital.
Luke Castle, community coordinator at the Keeping Digital Foundation, said: “With large amounts of services moving online, it’s important that residents are provided an option to gain the skills they need to make the most of digital and to get connected, whether that be finding out about local council information or getting in touch with their GP via the NHS app.
“Our volunteers will be available for a warm drink and a chat, and we really encourage residents to stop by and speak with them to find out more about how we can support them in getting online.”
The other digital cafés are at Tang Hall Explore Library, Sanderson House in Chapelfields, St Wulstan in Heworth, York Stadium and St Sampsons in York city centre.
